Palm Beach International is now one of nine airports in the state to feature a program called "TSA Pre-check".  The application center was unveiled yesterday and the Palm Beach Post reports it promises to cut the security screening wait time for eligible passengers. 

Pre-check travelers not only get to use separate fast lanes, keep on their shoes, belts and jackets, but also can keep their laptops and liquids in their carry-ons at checkpoints. 

Applicants undergo a background check, fingerprinting and pay $85.  Still, travelers are not guaranteed to enjoy all of the benefits each time they fly.  It depends on the airline and the time of day.
